t towering nmliltlon for the stage, he spent 
lis days nt the Jewelers bench and his nights 
nt the "show shops" doing extra work when- 
ever opportunity afforded. 

Tho Inevitable soon happened. The Jewel- 
ry business began to lose Its hold on Tom 
nnd the boards claimed him. Theatrical ex- 
porlences rnnie fast nnd furious after that, 
and Tom always made good. Ono dny he 
walked Into the Sellg Polyscope studios and 
announced that he was ready for work, lie 
was tried out nnd put Into "lends." Here 
lie remained until he became leading man of 
the Western company, of which ho was nn 
original member. Ho accompanied tho first 
motion picture camera man Into California, 
and hns remained In that fair land ever since. 

Tom has an unusual talent tor music, and 
plays almost ontlrely by "ear" nnd "Inspira- 
tion," often Improvising to the everlasting 
pleasure of his friends, who nmr tiro of 
hearing him. Tom Santschl holda the reputa- 
tion at having played more different roles 
than any other actor In tho moving picture 
(justness. His dressing room diary, which 
Is Incomplete, shows that he has portrayed 
over 1,100 different parts dnrlng his live 
jours as a picture player. 

The Sellg Co. and Tom arc Inseparable, and 
neither Is anxious to Jose the other.

has worked untiringly to make It the biggest 
kind of a success. Jt Is not aft unusual thing 
to sec the lights burning In his office, In the 
German Rank liulldlng, long after business 

The success this exposition is assured to 
be is greatly due to his efforts.

Purposing to gain the hearty backing of 
the Motion Plcturj Exhlbtors' League of 
America In convention of tho First Interna- 
tional Exposition of the Motion Picture Art, 
nt the New Grand Central Palate, New York 
City, week of July 7, the American Museum 
of Safety will show pictures Illustrating the 
dangers of the street, especially to children. 
It Is the purpose of the Safety Committee to 
get official confirmation from the Exhibitors' 
League of the movement to give free demon- 
t.ti-at inns to children In or out of school 
of the dangers of mutilation nnd 
arising frooi congested conditions In tbc 
streets. These pictures will make clear 
to the most Jejune Intelligence how nnd how 
not to get off trolley cars and other vehicles, 
the dangers of stealing rides, nnd how roller 
skates may roll them Into the grave or tho 
hospital, via crushing wheels, etc., etc. 

The American Museum of Safety have been 
assured of the hearty co-operation of local 
theatre owners to show these pictures nt 
hours of recess or at other times. Tho pur- 
pose Is now to make this co-operation, now 
principally confined to New York City, na- 
tion wide in scope. Being sure of places to 
exhibit the films, the Safety Committee will 
then go after the respective boards of educa- 
tion and persuade them, to allot time In 
which tho pupils may see with their own ryes 
how their little comrades lose their limbs 
and Uves. The Safety Committee already 
has films Illustrating street dangers, and to 
this library they will add. 

It Is the purpose of the officers of the 
American Museum of Safety to extend this 
movement further than to children only. 
With the financial aid of corporations having; 
plants with machinery -which expose their 
workers to Injury or death they will carry 
this educational movement to adult minds. 
This method will reduce the number of crip- 
ples and lower the records of mortality. 

Louise Vole, the leading woman of the 
Pilot films, has become as great a success In 
the moving picture field as she attained dur- 
ing her starring seasons in the legitimate. 
Miss Vale has made great strides since she 
resigned her position as leading woman for 
the Rex films. Among her latest splendid 
performances In the silent drama are "Until 
Death Us Do Part," "The Governor's Ro- 
mance" nnd "For Old Times' Sake." Her 
great experience as a dramatic stock leading 
woman has been of Incalculable value to her 
in her new sphere, and the sumptuous gowns 
worn by her In pictures have won the ad- 
miration of picture "fans." 


A motion picture actress of renown, who 
has made n sensational success as the por- 
trayor of the title role In tho big feature 
film production of "Cleopatra." Her latest 
and most notable effort Is the lead In "The 
Wife of Cain." 


A petite and cute little girl who Is rapidly 
developing into a star screen entertainer, 
nnd who is appearing In current releases of 
the "Imp" brand of motion pictures.

Geo. Thatcher. 

Ed. Le Roy Bice sends us the following : 

Geo. Thatcher, one of the most fnmois 
of minstrel comedians, died at East Orange. 
N, J., Jane 2S. after an illness of sevcrsl 
anonths. Mr. Thatcher, whose full name was 
Caleb George Wright Thatcher, was bom la 
Baltimore, July 16, 1840. 

tie made his first professional appearance 
la his native city, in September, 1863, doing 
a double Jig, and appearing in black face; 
later, for a brief period, he appeared aa a 
Dutch comedian. 

In 1804 Mr. Thatcher averred that he ap- 
peared sb a monologue performer, and always 
claimed that he iwas tbe first man to do Buch 
an act ; this has been disputed by Willis I', 
fiweatnam. It was not until 1873 tbat he 
achieved any particular recognition, when, in 
the Fall of thatyenr, he made hla metro- 
politan debut at Tony Pastor's, then located 
at 201 Bowery. Here he played an aged 

On Nov. 10, same year, he opened at Sim- 
mons & Slocum's Minstrels, at their Arch 
Street Opera House, Philadelphia, and con- 
tinued with them and tbe later alliance ot 
tSlnrmoBB, Slocum A Sweatnom's Minstrels 
for about four years, and during that time he 
was one of the greatest favorites that ever 
appeared in the (junker City. 

On Aug. 20, 1877, be joined tho famous 
flan Fmnclsco Mnwtrels, bi this city, headed 
by Birch, Wambold and Backus, where he 
remained exactly three yean, leaving Bee. 
11, 1880. and opening Thatcher & Ryman's 
Minstrels at the Arch Street Opera House, 
Philadelphia, Dec. 20. 

This organization, comp.-iacd some of tho 
foremost celebrities of minstrelsy. In addi- 
tion to the stars, the roster included : Charley 
Becd, Chas. I ley wood, Andrew Mock (then 
known as Master Will L. Mack), Win. Henry 
Rice, Scamon, Sommers and the Girard Bros., 
one of the latter being Eddie Girard, who 
later become famous as of the organization 
of Donnelly end Girard. in "Natural Use." 
Thatcher A Ryman's continued until the 
Spring of 1881. In the Kail of that year, 
the following season, Geo. Thatcher's Min- 
strels held sway. 

At the conclusion of that season the long 
alliance of Barlow, Wilson, Primrose ana 
West's Minstrels terminated, and Mr. That- 
cher Joined forces with Geo. Primrose and 
the late Wm. H. West (died Feb. IS, llMiui, 
and until the early part of 1880 this company 
was one of the most famous In minstrelsy, 
and played to the largest week's engagement 
in Boston, ever known In minstrelsy. 

In 1880-00 he was the feature of the 
great Howard Athenaeum Specialty Co., for 
which ho was engaged for bis Justly famous 

In 1800 he again hcal"d Kbatcher's Mln- 
streia for a road tour, subsequently and for 
three ycajvj producing extravaganza and farce 
comedy, "Tuxedo/' "Africa'" aud "About 
Gotho/m," respectively, under the manage- 
ment of Rlcb A Harris. 

After this, and for two seasons, with Car- 
roll Johnson, he beaded Thatcher A John- 
son's Minstrels, 

In addition to doing his single specialty In 
vaudeville, he also appeared with Charley 
Ernest, Ed Marble, Banks Winter, Will rbll- 
lrps and bis wife Mrs. Zenalde Thatcher, 
whom be married in Chicago about eight or 
nine years ago. Mrs. Thatcher, who sur- 
vives him, was tbo widow of Odell Williams. 
At the inception of Cohan A Harris' Min- 
strels, in 1O08, Mr. Thatcher wag with them 
for several weeks. Tbe following season he 
was the feature of Eddie Leonard's Minstrels 
for a brief period. 

Within the past ten years Mr. Thatcher 
portrayed the "darky" roles in "OTie County 
Chairman" and "Cameo Klrby." tbe former 
being a comedy role, while the latter was an 
aged servant of more serious Import Two or 
three years ago he also played the important 
black face part in "George Washington Jr." 
for a couple of weeks. 

One of the moat Important engagements of 
his career was with Moore & Burgess' Min- 
strels, in London, where he achieved such 
success tbat has been equalled by few and 
excelled by none This was about thirty 
years ago. 

IKor the past two seasons, and up until 
about three months ago, he played the ser- 
vant to "The Littlest lleb>l. a black face 
part, and played It In such a manner that but 
one living exponent of the Mack face art 
could egual. 

So much for the life and career of Geo. 
Thatcher. Ab to hla talents, they were mani- 
fold, equally at homo was he in pathos or 
comedy. As a minstrel comedian he acbleved 
a reputation, and a merited reputation, 
second to no one. Geo. Thatcher was versa- 
tile and he was unctuous. He could tell a 
story on the end and get more out of It pos- 
sibly than any other man In minstrelsy. The 
spectacle of an end man taking several 
encores on a "gag" was almost unique. But 
it belonged to Geo. ITiatcher. Personally 
he was hall fellow, well met, aa popular and 
democratic with his brother performers as 
with the pubUc. We'll miss you Geo. That- 
cher, for wo cant forget your "Villain Still 
Pursued Her" nor your clever and timely 
parodies that told and sang so well.. 

Tho funeral services occurred Juno 27, at 
the home of his nephew, Joseph M Thatcher, 
where he died. Burial was at Weetfleld, N. J.

It whs reported last week on good au- 
thority that William Collier would return to 
tho management of Charles Frolininn. Tbla 
will bo the drat time that Mr. Frohman baa 
permitted a star, who baa voluntarily left 
his management, to return. Mr. Collier will 
have tho choice of two plays. One of them 
la by Richard Harding Davis, which the 
comedian likes very much, and which be will 
undoubtedly choose as his vehicle. 

The reason that Mr, Collier la leaving; 
Lew Fields' management la duo Bolely to tho 
fact that Mr. Molds has no available play 
for him, This change of management will, 
of course, remove the name of William 
Collier from tho Comedy Theatre, as tho Bhu- 
bcrts wero interested with Mr. Fields In tho 
Collier engagement Mr. Collier's play of 
last season, Never Bay Die." will be sont out

ranged to prouco at the Royalty Theatre in

Doris Kenno and Dennis Raille will have 
the principal rolei in the London production. 
Mr. Bhubert had a conference with Granville

engaged abroad for 'the coming season In

of being possible to make It a real "go"

was presented by Fred E. Btegltch, formerly

perfect quartette," c»"ie along In the next 
position. We found \ . m. Pruette, of Frltzl 
Bcheff'a "Mile. Modiste" and "My Little 
Friend" companies, baritone; Boydon Keith 

Woodland" company, first tenor. Bob Klser, 
erstwhile leader of the Oak Hotel's Sym- 
phony Orchestra, and now wltb Shapiro A 
Bernstein's Music Co., did his part very well 
by accompanying the boys at the piano. Tbey 
were all In good voice with tbe exception of 
Franklyn Wallace, tbe tenor. He was ill 
when he arrived and could not give a proper 
account of his vocal ability. However, they 
warbled enough to show they could do some 
big time work and get away easily wltb It. 

Cella Ternon, a little Jewish girl singer, 
did that little stunt quite a while and made 
a fair impression in only one number, her 
last, a raggy one. Celia is not ready to 
cause any sensation Just yet 

Lotta Virginia Plcard, a soprano singer, 
sent down by Phil Nash, sang a few numbers 
In a aweet soprano voice, but did not come 
up to necessary qualifications. 

Marvin, Kahn and Nugent, ft rathskeller 
trio of young men, were the main up-to-date 
treat of the morning. Two of the boys, one 
possessing an exceptionally fine tenor voice, 
handled the big share of the songs, while the 
piano party equalled his partners' fine work 
on the keys. Tbey have all the proper ideas 
and good stago business to go to work imme-

to rooting they have got tho world beat. The 
ladles were there in full force and mnilo a pretty 
sight, sll dressed In white, and they are not 
bsckward in rooting either. It was a great gamo 
and our boys worked tine. Tbe game waa a tie 
at the ninth bmlng so wo had to play the tenth 
inning, and If it hadn't been for an error on our 
part we would surely bave won the game, but 
aa It was tbo score was to 4 In favor of tbe 
Dearfleld team. Wo were all In hopes that we 
would have a game with the D. ft B. Show but 
they wired ub that they had no team. But we 
hear, over here, that they have one. Now we are 
sll wondering If tbey are afraid of being beaten.

Lewie Uesd, the .elephant man, out of bis berth, 1 - 

and soiling a can of water they endeavored to get also Mlas Wilson, who Is a cousin, I think. Then 

to the scene of the Ore. there was a hunch of awfully good fellows among 

By this time the smoke was so dense thst they them that I remember was : Geo, Barnett, Jobn 
were unable to reach the Ore and were driven 
back and out of tho car. Meanwhile, the engineer 
bad discovered tbe Ore snd he rushed ahead with 
all speed for the town, There were sixty people 
in the car and It Is a miracle that any of them 
are alive. As It was, they escaped only In their 
night clothes, and bad the Are occurred before 
daylight. In all probability there would have been 
a horrible catastrophe. 

There were many exciting rescues and Ohas. 
Williams owes bis lite to the bravery of bis bed- 
mate, Barry Bowman, who stayed with blm until 
he had aroused him and pulled blm oat of his 
bunk. Michael Lepon was pulled out of hla bed 
by William Green and W. J. Daplyn snd lust 
escsped with his life. The ladles lost sll of their 
street wardrobe, and the men tfielr clothes snd 
all of their valuables. When tbe show reached 
asry for most everybody to 
cars until a new supply of 
clothing could be procured. 

Hod it not been for the efforts of Manager 
Sparks it la probable that no one In the car would 
hive been saved. He rushed back and aroused sll 
the sleeping Inmates and worked like a Troian 
to save their lives. After tho Are he remarked 

Mullln, Wm. Floyd, Fred. Morgan, and so many 
others that I can't recall their names, hut tbey 
were all real fellows, and by what I hear tbey 
bad acme time down at tbe hotel, between shows. 
Anyway I saw Bert, holding his bead mighty high 
that night, but a little White Itock fixed blm up, 
and he was right on haad when It was time to 
mak« his announcement and say, Bert is some 
snnounccr. The other day when announcing about 
the overland auto, I saw more than one old 
farmer put his band In his pocket and start to 
draw out his bank roll. 

We have Just started a collection for the Fourth 
of July and we are sure going to have some fire- 
works after tbe show at nlgut, also plenty to est 
and drink, as we have already over |100. There 
la certainly some great bunch over here sll In for 
a good time, and believe mo we certainly do have 
good times. We hsve also planned for a ball game 
with the Hudson, N. Y., team, so we sre all look- 
ing forward to celebrating the fourth In grand 
holiday style. The following are tho committee In 
charge of tbe big time: Jock Moore collector ; 
Arthur Thompson, Billy Bice, business managers) 
Bert Cole, Joe Goyle, Geo. Conner*, Carl Lsster, 
Sam Newman, Mac. MoOree, In chsrgo of shoot- 

be didn't mind his loss so long aa no Uvea wore jm b fireworks; Reno McOree and Harry Liu! 
tost He lost all of hla wardrobe and Mrs. 
Sparks the same, a diamond atud valued at IftOO, 
and about $800 In money that was hi bis clothes. 
Fortunately most of the money wss In the safe 
In the offlce. but there was about $3,000 In paper 
and sliver In a closet in tbe office which waa 
saved by the daring of Clifton Sparks who fought 
back the Ore with palls of water until be had 
secured all of the money. Tbe performers aided 
by the townspeople, worked valiantly, and suc- 
ceeded anally In putting ont the lire, but not until 
the cor was completely gutted. 

The performers lost all of their money and 
only one or two saved a particle of wardrobe. It 
was a sorry looking bunch that huddled In tho 

Brimem car until the train reached Kscaneva. 
[ere the officials of tho Northwestern road proved 
friends In need. Tbey furnished a 72-foot steel 
ear and told Mr, Sparks to keep it aa long as It 
was needed. 
Mr. Sparks left immediately for Chicago to 

{lurchase a new sleeper and the sbow proceeded 
o Munlalng, It wan exceedingly fortunate tbst 
the Dro did not occur earlier In the nlgbt, as in 
all probability not a lite could have been saved.

July 1. 

The Two Bills' Show* opened a nine day*' 
engagement In Chicago Saturday afternoon, 
Jane 28, to an audience which mi remark- 
ably large, considering th< extreme heat 
which prevailed. The night bouse was ex- 
cellent, although It wis nppe.rcnt that the 
hot weather hod a tendency to reduce the at- 
tendance. The business yesterday at both 
performance* waa good and It Is fair to pre- 
sume that If the torridlty subsides the big 
Wild West and Knr Kant will round out a 
Torv successful Chicago engagement. One 
thing Is certain, neror wa* a better Wild 
Went and Far Host exblbtlon ever given la 
this city. . . . 

On Saturday evening, Juno 28, a luncheon 
was tendered by The Showmen's league of 
American to General W. F. Cody and official

die management to Oen. W. F. Cody and 
Major Gordon W. Llllle, In the form of a, 
peace pow-wow. 

Indiana, cowboys, cowgirls, prominent tuf- 
frugette lenders and oilier noted personages 
raano up the warm but happy party, icdwnnl 
Mixinger, a prominent attorney of Chicago, 
presided as toastmastcr, and opened tbo af- 
fair formally by presenting Oen. W. F. Cody, 
Who responded with n brief talk expressing 
his gratitude In behalf of his associates and 
himself for the royal entertainment afforded 

him. After breakfast waa served one of the 
Bloux Indian chiefs present spoke for his red 
brothers, his remarks being Interpreted by 
lied Feather. The chief expressed tbe good 
will of himself and bis braves toward tbo 
white brothers, and his remarks fitted in ad- 
mirably with the atmosphere of peace which 
predominated in all of the talks. Other 
noted speakers were: Prof. Frederick Starr, 
of tbe University of Chicago; Mrs. George 
Bass, a leading member of that organisation ; 
Major Gordon W. Llllle and Major Burke, of 
tbe Two Bills' Shows. Gen. W. K. Cody, who 
spoke last, in pursuance to a request by tbe 
toastmastcr, gave a few of his intimate ex- 
periences with tbe Indians. Tbe breakfast 
this morning was undoubtedly one of tbe 
most remarkable functions ever arranged in 
this country. Not a detalltwa* overlooked to 
make the affair memorial. 

To-morrow at noon (be Hamilton Club 
will entertain President Gen. W. F. Cody, 
Major Gordon W. Llllle and executive officers 
of The Showmen's League of America at a

BiNOoa, Ms., Bonriay, June. 20. 

Am a little afraid tbe Young Buffalo corresinuid- 
ence will be sonMwhat shorter this week than 
usual, because there Is virtually nothing to tell 
tat the old story we hate repeated here the last 
three or four weeks. 

Beautiful weather and big business. Yesterday 
was particularly Batletlng. We shewed Tort, 
land. Me., two weeks after Rlugllng Broe., and 
one day before the 101 Itsneh, to capacity busi- 
ness, both afternoon and night. 

ijit Sunday we were In Parnlian. P. Q. : 
mail and very quiet little place lhst la. full 
of excitement onos a year, when the mllltls makes 
■la Bummer camp there. There were several 
veslaients of the Canadian mllltls there, taking 
their yearly ccorso of study In things military. 
sad among the Intrroetoni we found several of 
the Itoyal Canadian Dragoons we had met In 
at. Johns a week previous. These boys are very 
exoch Interested In oar "movies," so we pat on 
a new film for them that evening. 

Some rsees between local horse* were trailed 
off at Farnbam on 8iu«lay, and Vernon Beaver 
Jr. entered to win second to two heat*. Tbo 
yoangater showed oonaldrrahle skill In the man- 
agement ot bla mount, wln-.ilng over some very 
■sod horses and more viperlenced riders. 

On Wednesday, >f>, we retnrned to tbe States, 
to Island Pond, Vt„ and while Canada treated 
as great aa an enhlbltlon end Individually think 
we were all very glad to see tbe good old "Stars 
sod Rtrtpe." at Ike bead of the parade again. 

CM. Cummins left the show at Lewtaton for 
Portland to see the newspapers snd prepare for 
oar coming tbe following day. 

While at Portland 1 had the iiteaaare of meet- 
ing John K. Mulany, llanfor. Me., correso a nent 
for Tua Ci.iivaa. Mr. Mulany and bis little 
tlangbter witnessed the afternoon performance, 
after which Mr. Mulany and myself bad a wry 
enjoyable little ctiit on the general superiority of 
C'Lii'vaa men over the Teat or humanity. 

Mra. Heaver, with Vernon Jr., ana Mrs. Ool. 
Cummins sad daughter. Lota, Client our Portland 
day at Old Orchard-Beach, one hour's trolley ride 
from tbe city, and a very famous old watering 

Joe Miller, ot 101 Ranch faane, was a visitor 
in Portland. Mr. Miller waa ru the lot all day, 
guest of Mr. Beaver and Ool. Cummloa, and was 
very lavish In his praise of our show and stock. 
This waa Indeed praise, coming from tbe pro- 
prietor of such nn organisation an the 101 Ranch 
Bttosr*. for If any one Is a Judge of these things 
it certainly Is Mr. Miller. 

To our lasting grief and regret one "Dusty" 
Hematreet, Worthy drand Commander of too 0. 
M. Society. an:l one of Its most active workers, left 
as at Montreal. Dotty was anaooccer, and 
ranted the parade. Jsat the cause of his de- 
parture la yet a mystery, for we have beard not 
s word from bin, but It is suaplcloned that be 
transferred his afrectiona to tbe LMekey Wild West 
hi iow, now playing Dominion Park, Dusty Is 
ttw salt of tbe eartb. and while oar loss tan be 
somewhat mitigated by state aunoaaoers, we are 
glad If he baa bettered Dlnwclf. 

While nl Khawroeban Falls, P. Q., we were 
treated to one of the sights of Canada. The falls 
are located abtnt a mile and a half from town, 
and with the wonderful scenic setting they are 
In form a annat beautiful sight. About Ave hun- 
dred yards above the falls are twelve large Iran 
•taxi-rate*, three of which were open. These 
gates release the water from above to go tumbling 
down in Immense volume- toward the fall* through 
a rocky canyon perhaps two hundred yard* In 
width. Arriving at the falls the water drop* ono 
hmxlred feet Into a basin studded with huge 
rocks, snd this with tbe pine elad mountains 
rising sheer on three tides, makea a eery beautirul 
and Impressive tight Practically all the show

Nn, Otli Skinner Scrnnrlo Writer. 
The Sell; Polyscope Co. bas announced 
for release on July 19, a two reel drama 
from the pen of Mrs. Otis fcklnner, entitled 
"The Ne'er To Return Road." Thin la not 
the drat time this brilliant and accomplished 
woman las placed her pen to paper for 
dramatic purposes, but It Is practically Jier 
debut as the scervirlo writer for a pictorial 

?>)ay, The subject is particularly strong In 
be moving quality of "mother lore." A 
liagedy perpetrated and one Imminent, add 
'o the Intensity of Its Interest. 

List week Manager Tom Persons, of the 
Sellg branch of Chicago, sent a carload of 
animals to the Bdlg animal farm at Eden- 
dale, Cal. Among the snlmals. listed wag 
the wonderful baby elephant, Annie May 
(only four feet high) ; a pair of most mag- 
nificent royal Bengal tigers that ever, came 
fiora the Bagenbeck Zoological Gardens, of 
Hamburg; a mountain lion, a sacred cow, a of bear cubs, and a number of smaller 
unlmal*. The baby elephant, Annie May, 
will soon be utilized In a picture play, with 
"Baby" Lillian Wade, at the California 

Although the Sellg Polyscope Company 
has the largest skylight of any structure in 
Chicago, tbe Intense heat of the first few 
days of last week was not as perceptible as 
might bare been anticipated by reason of 
the fine new cooling; plant that has been In- 
stalled In the building, supplying Iced air 
to the big studio. 

The rnrnoms With Sails;. 

William Fnrnum and his brother. Marshal 
Farnum, stalwart favorite actors, associated 
with many dramatic successes, have been 
now engaged by the Sellg Folyscopo Com* 

Einy, for some special productions that will 
e made at tbe big Sellg plant in Los Ange- 
les, Cal. They will begin work there July 8, 
In a new pictorial -version of Vincent Church- 
bill's most famous American novel, "The 

Sellg- Release* Week of July 14. 

At the present all the world Is on wheels, 
consequently there is an almost universal 
Interest In a railway drama. The Sellg 
Polyscope Company have a unique piny of 
this class, called "Tbe Only Chance," that 
will be released July 14. In this remarkable 
film, a lineman makes a thrilling run on an 
up-to-date electric handcar, catching an ex- 
press train running sixty miles an hour, and 
averting a terrible calamity. 

In an eminently practical age, symbolism 
that point* a moral Is relished for its con- 
sclcnublo ruslltlcs. Such is tbe investment 
of "The Tree and tbe Chaff." This petite 

tragedy lists the wholesomo person of kntli- 
lyn Williams as the good spirit, and Barney 
Furey as the no'cr do well son of a Goo 

fearing donson. He stands for chanco-blowa 
chaff of fate. Hie good influence eventually 
lifts him free from tho evil and worthless 
chaff to which be has given himself. "The 
Tree and tho Chaff" will be released July 15. 

A wild Irishman, whose dream of political 
ambitions reaches to the presidency, thinks 
he has attained this high office during bis 
noon-day nap between trips of his hod to tho 
top of n building in the course of erection. 
He surrounds himself with n bunch of "flan- 
nel mouths" and "low-brows," who proceed 
to play ball with politics. The ouly thing 
he really accomplishes is to settle the hod- 
carriers' strike, when tho boss wnkes him up 
with a kick. On this same reel Is an educa- 
tional subject of Interest. "Fancy Fowls," 
This reel will be released July 10, 

"Put to the Test" is a pathetic play with 
an admirable point, showing tho occnsional 
obstacle) placed In tho way of artistic am- 
bition. A country girl with a beautiful voice 
attracts tho attention of a well known 
teacher who instructs her, and on the night 
or her debut in opora her voice vanishes. 
The girl is sorely tried by the calamity, but 
eventually returns to her old home, marries 
a wortby man, and settles down to domestic 
duties. When the first baby comes the 
mother-love wells into song, her voice cornea 
back, and eventually sho returns to the stage 
and realises her ambition In a higher and 
nobler way than she had ever dreamed of 
before. This Interesting and touching play 
will be released July 17. 

"Granny's Old Arm Chair" Is a play In 
which love and faith are well rewarded. It 
Is a. plav of simple, Godfearing folk, who 
Idolise the Old Granny, who eventually 
passes away, leaving liberal dispensations 
for her relatives. The best beloved nephew, 
strangely enough, receives the most ordinary 
gift — her old arm chnlr — which he accepts 
with duo gratitude, although other members 
of the family fear he will break the will. 
Eventually bis bouse burns and everything 
is lost, but the old arm chair. This Is so 
burned that he discovers In the upholstery 
valuable securities that make him tbe wealth- 
iest member of the family. On this same reel 
Is on Interesting Sellg educational Bubject, 
"A Moro Fish Drive." oy Jolo. The release 
of this fllm Is July 18.

..Under the title, "Field Sports at Hong 
Kong, Chins," tho Vltagrapii Company re- 
leases a film which cannot fall to Interest all 
lovers of outdoor sports. It shows how ath- 
letes are developed on tho other side of tho 
world. Clonk Kong, being an English treaty 
port, Is the most up-to-dafo city in the Orient, 
and the audience is largely composed of Hng- 
llih and Americans of the better class, These 

Kmcs show to what a remarkable degree tho 
Itatlve feature of the Chinese is applied Id

tests and other events would do credit to

In the Vltagrapb release, "Tbe Spell," an* 
nounced for release in July, Edwin August, 
the photo-playwright and star, gives us a 
sample of his remarkably effective versa- 
tility. Besides playing the leading- part, he 
is credited with the authorship of tbe story, 
which Is a particularly brilliant one. It tells 
of a young and pretty girl, held in the grasp 
of a hypnotic spell, being cleverly saved by 
the quick wit and action of ber (lance. 

"The Spirit of the Orient," another product. 
of the Vltngrnph "globe trotters," promises 
to demand no small-share of the great popu- 
larity of the photoplays of that now famous 
company. The drama, staged In and. around 
Bombay, India, deals with the domestic 
troubles of en Englishman who marries a 
beautiful hnlf-caste Hindoo girl. It proves 
again that blood Is thicker than water. She 
tries to kill her husband for the love of a 
man of her own race. Tbe two conspirators 
die by their own hands. 



So much has been said and written about 
the big convention that it la nearly lmpoael. 
ble to add anything. The notion picture 
exhibitors from all over the country will 
assemble on July 7, at the grand Central 
Palace, some five or six thousand strong, 

ML A. Neff, tho president, will open the 
convention, and later a speech of welcome 
will be made by some high city or State 
official. During the week an elaborate plan 
of entertainment haa been prepared, and It 
Is confidently, expected that there will not 
be a dull moment during the stay of the 
motion picture men in tbe big town. 

Clem Kerr and Lou R. Thomas, national 
organizers, together with M. A, Neff, have 
been working like beavers for months past, 
and it looks a? If their efforts will be crowned 
with success. 


Nothing very definite has been settled In 
the Interesting conflict over the control of 
the Universal. Friday, June 26, when tbe 
case came up before Justice Golf for a bear- 
ing, the Powers and Swanson faction was 
represented by John Delahunty, and the 
I.oemmlo side by George Gordon Battle. 

Justice Golf, after hearing both sides, or- 
dered them to hold a directors' meeting and 
try to come to somo sort of understanding. This 
was done, but it BcemB as if it was of little 
or no avail in trying to straighten things out 
satisfactorily. Other meetings will be held 
this week, and It is thought that something; 
of a definite nature will be decided on. 





The announcement that the Blograph Com* 
any has formed a combination with, Klaw & 
Irlanger for tho purpose of producing, In 
■notion pictures, some of their moat popular 
stage plays, comes as a welcome surprise. 

The offerings of this combination will em- 
brace an excluive repertoire of copyrighted 
Clays. Already nearly four hundred havo 
been secured for this purpose, and rehearsals 
for tho earlier releases will bo begun at once. 
We can look for the first productions of this 
combination about Oct 1.

Under the subject head, "Customs,'* In the 
General Film program, comes a picture en- 
titled "The Consecration of a Buddhist 
Priest." This strange ceremony, illustrated 
In every detail, makes a welcome addition to 
the already generous proportion of "educa- 
tlonals" furnished by tho General Film Com- 
pany. Preceded by a corps of musicians, tbe 
future priest marches with tbe members of 
Ms family to the temple, and there the 
temptation ceremony takes place. Tho mu- 
sicians, pcroonlfylng the evil spirit, take 
turns at tempting the young candidate, thus 
allowing him an opportunity to show bis 
strength of character. Finally, after proving 
his ability to withstand the various tempta- 
tions which might befall his priesthood, he 
Is presented with his sacred vestments, which

Mary Garden has written for an "Alkali" 
Ike doll. Not tho Mary Garden we all know, 
but nevertheless, a Mary Garden. The Mary 
Garden wo sneak of Is a little girl, seven 
years old, who lives In Bangor, Me. Her 
mother read her a story In one of the Bangor 
papers, In which the child learned that the

"Alkali" Iko dolls on horses. Mary became 
very enthusiastic and wrote to the fllm com- 
pany, telling them that she had saved sixty- 
three cents and would like them to send her 
an "Alkalol" Ike doll. Tho company have 
forwarded to this little photoplay fan a 
doll mounted on a horse, gratis. The Essanay 
Company hopes that Miry will receive as 
much enjoyment out of the doll as they did 
In receiving her beautiful letter.

On pads 6 of this paper will be found a 
very good portrait of Hopp Hadley, publicity 
representative of the Reliance Co. A phase 
of his character that few people have dis- 
covered is that he is studiously Inclined, hav- 
ing studied law at the New York Law School 
only two years ago, preferring to spend his 
evenings pouring over Blackstone rather than 
In pursuit of pleasure, He is also a musician 
of some ability, having educated himself as 
a violinist and as a vocallut, his baritone 
voice being the reason for bis original stage 
activities. Of course he Is an enthusiast — 
a press agent must be one — be needs it In 
his business. If you wont to hear him en- 
thuse ask htm about J. V. Rltchey's Tuesday 
night meetings at the Reliance studio, and 
the methods employed by Manager Bltchcy 
wherewith .he hopes to make Reliance pic- 
tures tbe greatest in tbe world. It Is then 
that you will see his face, which usually 
bears a broad smile, grow serious, and tho 
grave born of a long line of mlnlHters (bis 
three brothers are all Episcopal clergymen) 
come into his eyes as he talks about the fu- 
ture of Reliance as if nothing in tbe world 
was of any Importance except moving pic- 


Some wonderfully Intimate views of Cardi- 
nal Farley are claimed by the New Majestic 
photographers la their film of the Golden 
Jubilee ceremonies of tho New York Catho- 
lic Protectory. These views are stated to 
be the best "close una" of the great digni- 
tary of the church that have thus far been 
possible to procure. "It Is like standing 
alongside his eminence," says C. J. Hlte. The 
picture can be strongly recommended for 
Catholic Church entertainments, and In the 
regular picture house it will be educative 
to the many who like to see, at close range, 
bow a real cardinal moves and acts at an 
important function. "The Golden Jubilee," 
as the fllm Is called, releases Tuesday, July 1. 
\ Mrs. Lawrence Marston, wife of the vet- 
eran stage dlrectc:- now with Thanhouser, is 
aeen in a new type of part In "King Reno's 
Daughter" where sho has the principal female 

role in support of Maude Fealy. Mrs. Mars- 
ton, since her entrance Into picture work, 
has gathered some reputation for her hand- 
ling of roles of an Amazonian nature—- 
fighting suffragettes and strenuous business 
women. In this connection, she mast be 
remembered in "Good Morning. Judge,". "A 
Mlllltant Suffragette" and ''A Business 
Woman," all featuring on up-and-doing fe- 
male, who represented her sex as the stronger 
rather than the weaker. . So readers, tnay 
smile at the Thanhouser announcement that 
this Dim-ferocious female's part . in- "King 
Rene's Daughter" Is that of a patient, placid 
nurse! With Mrs. Marston In the support 
of Miss Fealy are: Harry Benham, Mignon 
Anderson, David Thompson, William Russell 
and Leland Benham. There are three reels, 
releasing Tuesday, July 1. ** - 

They gown fllm productions Just ns accur- 
ately as they ever did stage productions, 
nowadays. It is Interesting to note In this 
connection that Maude Fealy, starring In 
Thanhouser's "King Rene's Daughter," wore 
the very some lavender gown that Ellen 
Terry did In her celebrated stage production 
of this play. 


"Tkb Scamooat," a story by Lloyd Os- 
born, is being produced In two reels by the 
American Film Manufacturing Co. From 
tbe Interest and enthusiasm displayed by 
the leading man, Warren Kerrigan, and bis 
supporting cast, the picture promises an un- 
usually successful run. 

Thb capacity of the drying room of the 
American Film Manufacturing Co. has been 
Increased to twice what It formerly was. 
This was necessitated by the large and 
steady increase in business during the past 
several months. Other Improvements- axe 
also being Installed so as to ln«ure an even 
better pbotog.-aphlc quality tb'n has here- 
tofore been deemed i osslbie. 

Sio.vor B. Gcazzoni, one of tbe best 
known of the Clnes directors, was the victim 
of an odd accident recently, according to 
advices from Rome. Guazzonl was the di- 
rector of "Quo Vadla?". and while making a 
scene from a multiple reel subject of Oriental 
setting, had much difficulty In making a base 
python remain within the lines of the 
camera. While stooping over the body of 
the glint snake, a setting close by collapsed 
end fell with a crash, startling tbe snake so 
that Giiazzonl received, a severe glancing 
blow, which broke his right arm and stunned 
him, Guazzonl was taken to a neighboring 
hospital where his condition was reported 
serious. This is the first accident of any 
consequence that has befallen any member of 
the Clnes Co. 


"Things are coming along pretty nicely for 
Itamo," says C. Lang Cobb Jr., manager of 
sales and publicity. This is demonstrated In 
the fact that C. Lang has discarded his cane 
end rides about town In his new automobile. 

Wray Pbysloc, manager of Ramo produc- 
tions, Is planning tome new trick pictures, 
soon to be produced at tbe Jtamo studios. 
The Alms will be In live hundred foot lengths, 
and will Involve educational and scientific 
subjects. John Arnold, who has been re- 
sponsible for llano's excellent photography, 
has been experimenting with Mr. Pbysloc for 
several months, and they both claim that the 
result of their labors will prove to be won- 
ders in cinematography, ________ 

Win. 8. Davis Is directing a very interest- 
ing feature picture this week, entitled "Men 
who Labor.' Tbe story Is adopted from 
Emile Zola's "Labor." Mary Aldcn, Jack 
Hopkins aad Stuart .Holmes dominate the 
cast end. Judging by 'their acting, they are 
lifting this strong story to a very high level. 

Wray Pbysloc keeps adding to the Ramo 
Stock Company. Arthur Finn, formerly with 
Lnbln and Reliance Companies, Is the latest 
addition. Mr. Finn will be featured In some 
forthcoming comedies now under direction. 

DiBccTon J. Fasrbu. MacDonald, of the 
Powers Photo Plays, Inc., Is making big 
preparations for a picture which promises 
to Ms wonder. In fact . the preparations 
have been going on for a long time now, and 
the photoplay starts this week. The subject 
Is "A Dream of the' World's' Tragedy," and 
play is suggested by Mary Correll's book, 
entitled "Bnrabaa." It Is not yet decided 
what the length of the play will be whether 
three or four reels, but the play will be ac- 
corded tbe treatment It merits. Before start- 
lag It Tom Evans, the general manager, was 
approached, and the expense was laid before 
hlm/and Ms comment was, "Go to It." This 
'production will be a revelation of Just what 
can be done In California. The play will re- 
quire a very large cast and a number of extra 
Jieople, between two hundred and fifty and 
our hundred. Tbat much Is certain. Whilst 
'all "of the' important parts are not yet cast, 
It Is known that "Barnabas" will be In the 
hands of Arthur Maude, who will have an- 
other chance to show what a (splendid picture 
actor he really is. Judith will be taken by 
Constance Crawley, one of the finest classical 
actresses In the business, and Joe Harris will 
Impersonate Calphas. 

A series of big Important scenes will be 
capped by that of tbe Judgment hall, and 
for this, as well ns the other scenes. Charles 
Wallace, tbe scenic artist, first designed a 
cardboard set which is to be preserved by 
the company. Special costumes are being 
made for thJa picture. 

At.TFRATIONB to the fltudln Of the POWCrS

ing rooms are also being built.

"if the moving picture theatres are evil on

Genoa, Italy— The use of the cinemato- 
graph In public Instruction has been availed 
of here lately by adopting motion pictures in 
the public schools of Genoa, the first Innova- 
tion of this kind having been the recent In- 
stallation of a cinematographic apparatus in 
one of the Regie 8cuo!c Normall of Genoa <n 
school for girls), for the Instruction of tho

"Silvhb Kino" Picture Production.— Tho 
old melodrama of the "palmy days" period 
will be produced by the Gaumont Co. Henry 
Arthur Jones, the author, will superintend 
rehearsals in nerson. 


Little Marie Bllne, better known In the 
world of motion pictures as the "Thanhouser 
Bid." will be In New York City during the 
week of July 7, when tho Motion Picture 
Exhibitors' League of America holds its ex- 
position at Grnud Central Palace. This really 
wonderful little actress will appear «t two of 
the Proctor "theatres that week, and will un- 
doubtedly be a great drawing card. 

Manager William Matthews, of Proctor's 
Twenty-third Street Theatre, realized he 
should have something to rhyme with the 
surrounding ntmosphere for that week:, and 
immediately put in a bid at the U. B. O. 
headquarters for the Thanhouser Babe, with 
the result that the clever chHd actress will 
open at his theatre on Twenty-third Street; 
Just West of Slsth Avenue, on Monday, July 
7, for a three day stay. John Buck, mana- 
ger of the Fifty-eighth street Proctor house. 
will have "the little magnate" for the last 
tour days of that week, beginning Thursday, 
July 10. 

Every exhibitor who visits the city for 
this great festival week fully appreciate* 
what little Mario Ellne has done towards clo- 
vaUng this still advancing line of amusement, 
and they will undoubtedly endeavor to 
make a vlBlt to one of the Proctor theatres 
during their stay here, to witness this phe- 
nomenal little performer as a real actress 
before a regular audience. She Is. without 
doubt, one of the most photographed little 
actresses in plcturedom, and when she makes 
her first public appc&rnnco In Now York, 
at these two theatres, she should live up bo 
the wonderful record she has made before 
the camera, and test the capacity of B*. B".

which is ingeniously combined the Indian,

The story, "The Battle of Bldenbush

CHICAGO, Monday, June 80. 

This week brings to view one new play, 
"How Much Is a Million?" and sees Mc- 
iVIcker'B restored to tbe uses of tbe drama, a 
revival of "The Blindness of Virtue" having 
teen arranged. The Cort, Studebaker, Grand 
and Garrlck will continue In operation, re- 
taining their popular attractions. The Vic- 
toria and Imperial will remain open for the 
rest of tbls week, and then close cor a period 
of four weeks. 

"How Much Ii a Million '(' Is a new Ameri- 
can comedy in four acts, and la on view at 
tbe Fine Arts Theatre. The setting of this 
comedy is In Washington Square, New York, 
and the story has to do particularly with an 
eccentric and Impracticable writer of fairy 
talea, who wins an heiress over the heads of 
his wealthier competitors, and marries her 
after stipulating tbat each shall be financially 
Independent. Dp to this time none of hit 
books hae been published, but the young 
woman arrangei to have one printed at her 
own expense, and he Is made to believe that 
it is bringing la large royalties. Complica- 
tions follow nil discovery of the deception, 
and he leaves borne bocauso he cannot share 
his expenses equally. Subsequently he makes 
a fortune and tho wife loses hers. The 
author of the play Is C. It. Hopkins, who has 
bad considerable experience as an actor. In 
tbe company besides the author are: Mrs. 
Hopkins, Grace Grlswold, Lionel Belmore, 
Robert Brandon and others. 

.Supreme faith In his desire of the public 
for his goods was typified by T, C. Glcason 
to-day when he Installed bis company of 
players, with Frank Sheridan, at McVlcKer'a 
Theatre, In spite of the terrific heat. Two 
performances dally will be given by this com- 
pany In "Tbe Blindness of virtue" for a four 
weeks' run, at exceedingly reasonable prices. 

The same pltce hod a marvellous run at 
the Studebaker during the past season with 
an all-English cast, although this Is Its first 
production within the exact bounds known as 
the Loop. And Mr. Glcason has spared no 
expense or palm to make his downtown debut 
a notable one. The drama Itself Is a sure-fire 
one, having been given a test which It passed 
faultlessly. The new production is spotless 
and the players are all notables. Others In 
the cast besides Frank Sheridan are: Edith 
1-yle, Thomas Swift. Winifred Burke, Basel 
Kelly and Lora Bradstrcct. Miss Burke will 
t>e remembered as the delineator of the title 
role In "The Vampire," with Robert Billiard, 
Sheridan himself has been seen as the star 
In many a cast, and during the past season 
was In "A Thief for a Night," "The Unwrit- 
ten Law" and "Fine Feathers," in Chicago 

Fritz! Scheff, now playing at tho Stude- 
tnker, Is so well pleased with the welcome 
•lie has received In the revival of "Mile, 
itfortlste" in Chicago, that she purposes con- 
tinuing that opera tbroughout the next sea-

To start with, Valeria Sisters, two clever

to the delight of the enthusiastic crowd, who 
were gathered together on this warm night 
This sister team may be classed as one of 
the best In vaudeville, and their talent has 
been presented to Chlcagoans several times 
before. Unfortunately the ladles cannot sing, 
but they have a rapid-fire way of put- 
ting over their songs, which easily excuses 
the lack of voices. But right here it would

acts were new to Chicago, the others have 
paid us many visits in the past However, 
the majority of those which have been seen 
here before were of strong enough calibre to 
be welcome the second time and still be en- 
Joyed. A good example Is Stella Mayhew, 
whom, perhaps, everybody has heard at some 

has attained. The comedienne of the pair la 
quite capable of getting tbe full amount of 
laughs out of her material, but once again 
we repeat that the act must be replenished 
with something more fresh and new. The 
dancing was very mediocre, but again It was 
a case of putting It over. The. girls closed 
with a nice hand, considering their position.

and a lot of new ones with a most likable 
predseneas, and on occasions really show 
startling intelligence, so much so tbat It 
nearly converts one to the Darwinian .theory 
without hesitation. The act Is staged in a 
novel way, and Introduces both a dog and a 

stunt of tight wire walking, In their own 
novel manner, and It was this fact that dis- 
tinguished it from the many other acts of 
lis nature. The ability displayed on the 
wire demanded no special attention, for It 
was not superior to the hundreds of other 
like performers who have appeared on the 
Majestic bills. But it was disclosed with 
enough originality to bolster Its worth up.

dians of merit. They sang snappy parodies 
and talked a lot of foolishness until they bad 
them all laughing. In spite of the fine bill 
which preceded them, the boys came back 
very strong and closed with a big band. 

Harry Weber and the Wilson sensational 
dancers, wbo were late of Marie Dressler's

in a pleasing way. They were well applauded 
for tnelr graceful work, and more of It would

>For the first half of this week the Jean 
King Quartette was the first number to 
arouse tbe seat-slumping audience from its 
state of coma and stir up a little enthusiasm. 
Soring such hot weather it Is very easy for 
the audience to simply slide down In their 
■eats and remain there, while It Is equally 
as hard for the artists to pull them back up 
and make them applaud. But the Jean King 
Quartette proved to be such a pretty and 
pleasing musical stunt that It Imbued the 
spectators with enough life to make them sit 
so and take notice and applaud quite heartily. 
Miss King, who formerly appeared alone, 
has surrounded herself with, an able trio 
of singers, who render bits of opera, popular 
ballads and a little ragtime all In good style. 
It Is true that the members might unbelt 
themselves a little more and not be quite so 
stiff, even though they are all dolled up la 
dress clothes and evening gowns. But they 
tan sing, and that Is enough to make It at 
worth while affair. 

Knapn and Murray succeeded in making 
the audience laugh at a lot of their Jokes. 
These two gentlemen pulled a lot of bur- 
lesque melodrome and "got by." 
, Murray's Canines were put through a num. 
ber of clever, stunts, such as tight wire walk- 
ing and turning a complete forward somer- 

The Alvo Acrobatic Troupe did some ex- 
cellent work. The straight gentleman of tbe 
trio was considerable of a wizard on the hori- 
zontal bars. Their ability on the bars was 
the feature attraction of the number. Their 
attempt at comedy was weak. The act 
closed with a usual amount of warm weather 

Combls Bros, offered a very pleasing phy- 
sical culture act, also a series of Grecian 
poses, In which the boys used appropriate 
costumes to go with them. Half of the act, 
It might be well to say, was the winner, ac- 
cording to the banner displayed on the stage, 
of the first prize In the physical culture 
contest of the United States. That Is fair 
enough, Isn't ltf In fact, that alone gives 
anyone a license to appear In present day 
vaudeville. The boys closed their act with 
a number of strong arm feats, which were 
both Interesting ana excellently executed, so 
that, all In all. tola duo ranks as one of the, 
best en the bill. 

Nat Carr and company found no difficulty 
in winning the good graces of tbe audience 
right from the start. Mr. Carr is a well 
known (Hebrew comedian in vaudeville and 
knows how to portray the character In the 
correct manner, adding to It all with a good 
dialect A Utile story was Involved in the 
skit, enough to sort of hold It together and 
keep up the Interest until the end. The 
young lady and gentleman assisting Mr. Carr 
were capable, but were a minor factor along- 
side of the star.

Chicago, Saturday. June 28. 

As Sans Souci Gabdbns preparations are 
being made for a crowd on July 4. There 
will be numerous holiday features. A big 
celebration will be held in the Gardens, and 
there will be fireworks In the evening. The

little city, may not prove amiss. 

Chicago Is bounded on tbe North by 
Morse's Garden. Morse has been dead for a 
number of years, but if you are curious to 
know who runs the resort, start something. 

On the South Chicago Is bounded by the 
Btock Yards. Any hot night in Summer, with 
a South wind, will verify this statement. 

On the West the city is bounded by Forest 
Pork, where many .wise citizens go, as it Is 
some distance from said wind of the South. 

On the East the city Is washed by the 
waters of Lake Michigan, which is the only 
part of the city that ever gets a bath. 

Chicago has a sky over It, but It is al- 
most impossible for the visitor to believe this, 
on account of our well known smoke. 

The city has the largest number of smoke 
inspectors of any city In the world. Over 
two million and a batf Inspect smoke here 
every day. 

Englewooo Is a part of Chicago, and was 
so called to give tbe vaudeville performers a 
chance to localize their jokes and get a laugh. 

Chicago is known for Its hog industry. 
If you doubt this try to get on a street car 
during the rusb hours. 

That' black smudge just East of Michigan 
Avenue Is the I. C. Railroad. It is next to 
our beautiful lake, and the people are "next" 
to the I. C, but It doesn't do them any good. 

They are going to electrify the I. C. some 
day. They should electrocute some of Its 
employees first. 

.Bobdehino on Michigan Avenue are some 
of the highest priced hotels In all the world. 
They overlook the lake, and a lot of other 
things besides, but not your money. 

•DiBECTLY to your right is the Art Insti- 
tute. It Is now tbe only place In the city 
where "September Morn" is on exhibit, and 
they don't back up tbe wagon. 

The Loop is a well known Institution in 
Chicago. Gold was discovered there in large 
quantities some years ago by Geo. M. Cohan, 
and he has continued to discover It every sea- 
son since — In large quantities. 

Any part of the city may be reached from 
the Loop by elevated trains, providing cars 
stay on track, which they sometimes do. 

the Blalto is in the heart of the Loop, 
end is only a five minute walk from any or 
the principal hotels, which Is why it was so 
located, as walking Is quite popular with tbe 
average actor, 'likewise less expensive. 

The College Inn 1b a famous eating em- 
porium. Yon can get something to eat there 
If you are strong enough to carry a bribe 
heavy enough to catch a waiter's eye. A boy 
at the door takes your hat when you go In 
the College Inn. When you come out he 
hands it back, providing you band blm some- 
thing in return. If you have any money left 
after tipping tbe waiter and bat boy, you 
may then go to a lunch room end get some- 
thing to eat. 

There are a few cheap lnnch rooms In the 
Loop, but they don't make any money, merely 
enough to buy their owners half-million dollar 

Wr. are now entering the famous Lake 
Shore Drive. To the left is the beautiful

The irony of fate. Harry Splngold, as 
related In this column last week, became 
possessed of an automobile. No sooner had 
he got It so that It would stand without 
hitching than some miscreant etoll It. Mr. 
Splngold says he doesn't know the true mean- 
ing of "Irony of fate," but If It's a new Une 
of swear words, It goes double and takes in 
the chauffeur. 

Nonette, the violinist who sings, is scor- 
ing her usual success at the Palace Music 
Hall, this week. "Floating Down the River" 
Is her encore number. 

Later: Mr. Splngold went to the police 
regarding his auto. Every policeman on the 
force, however, swears he will stand for a 
search, consequently Mr. S. will have to look 
elsewhere. __^__^_____

1 sat down late one evening sUter the JWMet of the Day, 
1 floated to the Dreamland* with the (Mrif 0/ the Oay White Way; ■ 
The Rltina Sua ca*t a ruddy glow on. treat and sylvan brooks, 
I vow 1 saw tic Itotcland (HrU standing with Uotden Crook: 

It surely was a Beauty Pirate, The OehmbU* abowed me. 

Of jrirla. nnd gtrU, and yet more rlrU. to one BigJutaee: * . 

The College dirt* mixed with Social Hold* and Happy Widowi, too,' 
All mingled in tha merry throng, Cracker tack* thro 1 and thro*. 

These Queen* of Part* held my breath, they were BeUrn of Beauty Row, 
Hut I fainted at the heaxywakbta, oh 1 job BUty WcUon'e Blum: 
Urn Welch'* and Vave^daiio* 1 * Oum came fast, with bead erect and proud. 
There was Beauty, I'mttft and FoUv In all that motley crowd. 

Oh t Herri Garb from Happyload, and Gov Veto Yorker*, too. 

With Hurtix & Beamon'a Bowertet, decorated with Star and Oorfer anew ; , 

Tell me, American Beautlet, with all your smiles and curls, 

Why I could dream the lifelong day about those Ginger Qirl*. 

I dreamed of Boeeu Poaey Qirl*, with lights turned dim and low, 
The Honeymoon Girls, too, passed la Use, with A I. Beeve*' Beauty Show;* 
I saw in happy vision the Stria from Btarlani bright. Jh 

It aeemed that Fate was good to me la rosy dreamt (bat night 

The Troeaderot, Liberty Girls and Behman Show were there. 
With Bon Ton Girlt, the whole mass ot pride and Vanity Fair; 
I rubbed my eyes and looked again, saw RobUf* Beauty Show, . 
The Broadway Girl* they marched along with Mollie Williams' Co.; 
When Uiner'i Big Frolic appeared In line my head In clover laid, 
For I was drifting high, above, wttb 0am How?* Kitting Mali. 

I drifted on with Harry Hatting*' Btg Show, my mind a maw ot whirls, 
The Watton Bitten hand In hand, those handsome, defer girls ; 
Last, bat not least, the TaH Writ, those queens of happy mirth, 
" iy reverie and I came back to earth. 

They rounded off my

There is the false kind of nctivity not un- 
common at this season. The hot weather 
finds the weak spots ; prudent managers de- 
clare for a vacation; rash speculators step 
in and possess themselves of theatres for 
seasons that are sometimes very short 

Weedon Groamlth sketch, "A Week End," Is 
Just a quarrel scene between husband and

Mr. Hemmerdc s method of dealing with the — *-■ ■ ■■ 
situation most nrbltrarllv set up is laboriously 

to his dignity as a lawyer and as a 
politician holding a Judicial post, to put 
his name to such plays as "A Car- 
dinal's Itomanre," which was produced at the 
Savoy on Saturday. A wealthy young man, 
whose father had been of loose morality was 
led to believe that the sweet girl whom he 
had married was his own sister. It Is a dis- 
gusting situation. Investigation wonld prob- 
ably have satisfied him that there had been 

melodramatic, and his dialogue is pompous.

Messrs. Cohan A Harris have completed 
arrangements with Klaw & Erlanger wherebj 
the latter Arm will, In tbe future, manage 
Ibe George M. Cohan Theatre, the Gaiety 
Theatre and the Qrand Opera House, In this

Cohan & Harris still retain the same Inter-

his long cherished desire of making a com-

with Eugene Walter's successful play, "Fine 
Feathers." presented by Wilton Lackayc,

star cast seen at the Astor Theatre last sea- 
eon. Incidentally, Cohan & Harris have ex- 
pended more than $300,000 In building arid 
furnishing the Bronx Opera House, which in 
ornamental decorations and modern stage 

equipment Is not surpassed by any playhouse 
In America. It will be conducted as a com- 
bination theatre, playing Broadway successes 
at popular prices, ranging from twenty-five 
cents to one dollar, wltb a change of bill 

Geo. M. Cohan will open his season at the 
Bronx Opera House, Monday, Sept. 28, pre-

absorbing and world-wide question of woman's 
suffrage, and written by George Mldtlleton. 
will receive Its production at tbe hands of 
Cohan * Harris In Washington, D. C, during

Mme. Kenny Ltpzln, commonly referred to 
as the Sarah. Bernhardt of the Jowlsh thea- 
tre, has formed a co-partnership with the 
well known Yiddish players, Ellas Rothntcln 
and Jacob Cone, also with Edwin A. ltelkln, 
to tour the world. They are at present se- 
lecting their company, which is to consist 
only of the cream of the Yiddish theatre, and 
will start on or about Aug. 1 in some city 
near New York. This tour will extend until 
about Aug. 1, 1014, and will embrace tbe 
principal cities of the United States and 
Canada, and also those of England, France, 
Germany, Russia, South America and South 
Africa. This will be the first tlmo a com- 
plete Yiddish company composed of leading 
New York players will tour tho world. 

This Is being booked and arranged under 
the personal direction of tbe well known 
Yiddish theatrical manager, Edwin A. Belkln. 

The Actors' Society of America, like many 
another association whose members become 
apathetic, Is in trouble— auch trouble that 
unless It receives quick financial aid It Is 
likely to pass Into history as a has-been. 

On July S tbe headquarters of the Society, 
133 West Forty-fifth Street, New York, were 
rlslted by Deputy Sheriff Purccll with execu- 
tion papers issued on a Judgment of $3.14. 10 
against the Actors' Society. The sheriffs 
assistants stripped the walta of the pnlnt- 
Ings of Booth. Barrett, Fanny Davenport and 
other great stara of the paBt, and put them 
Into a waiting furniture van. Office furni- 
ture and other belongings of tho Society fol- 

lowed the portraits, and tho lot will bs sold 
July 10 at a salo personally conducted by 
Sheriff Harburger. 

The Actors' Society of America was found- 
ed many years ago, and has Included In Its 
membership at various times the greatest 
actors In Oils country. 

At the present tlmo many of our leading 
actors are on Its membership books, and tho 
ontlro list of members Is a formidable one. 
In explaining tho present trouble Miss Gil- 
Patrick, the secretary, said that the dues al- 
ways como In very slowly In tho Summer, 
nnd that they were slower this Summer than 
usual. She hones, however, that by Fall 
everything will bo straightened out. 



Julia Marlowe has received word that at 
a meeting of tho alumna and active members 
of tho Shakespeare Society of Wellcsley Col- 
lege, she had been elected an honorary mem- 
ber. In a letter Informing her of this honor, 
In recognition of her devotion to Shakcspcaro 
and her histrionic ability, Helen Toy, tho 
president of tbe society, wrote to Miss Mar- 
lowe : "Not upon you, but upon ourselves do 
we confer tbe honor in welcoming you to the 
'Gentle Companlc.* Ours is a bond of fel- 
lowship, and In greeting you we ask you to 
feel that yon are always welcome at homo 
among us, and that the door of 'the little 
house at the foot of tho hill' Is always open 
to you. We ask that you will wear our 
'mask nnd quill,' and be glnd to be remem- 
bered among a group of 'Scholalro Plalres. 

The Importance of tho honor conferred 
upon Miss Marlowe mny be understood when 
It Is known that up to her election as 
honorary member of tho Shakcspcaro Society 
of Wellcsley, the society had bestowed this 
compliment upon but three persons: Dr. 
Durnnt the founder of Wellcsley ; Henry N. 
Hudson, the Shakespearean critic, nnd Horace 
Howard Furncss, tho author of tho Variorum

Written by Harry Irving, one. of the guests 
at the Actors' Fund Homo, Staten Island, 
nud dedicated to Gus Bruno. 

(StillMIITHU BY afc rOBTELL.) 

Como all ye ancient actors and listen to my 

'Twill cause your lips to quiver and make 

your cheeks grow palo ; 
'Twns on a Sabbath evening, tho night was 

calm and still, 
When tho dreadful cry of flro resounded o'er 

the hill.' 

Somo flew to tho windows, and some flew to 

the door. 
And out Into the darkness a dozen of u* 

Wo looked towards the Bast and saw the sky 

was all aglow, 
'Good God, our barn Is burning 1" yelled out 

brave Gus Bruno. 

"Como on, boys," the-, he shouted, as be 

threw off his coat, 
And plunging through tho raging flames be 

drnirged out old Zob's boat. 
And with a noblo fireman and a cltlsen to 

On tho placid bosom of tbe lake the little 

craft was laid. 

Gus did not pause a moment, for nothing 

could him stay, 
And rushing back into the Are ho quick 

pulled out our sleigh. 
And when ho saw that It was safe, again be 

risked his life, 
And dashing in the chicken coop, he laved 

the rooster's wife. 

AH honor to Gus Bruno, tho valiant man of 

Ills name upon tho scroll of fame should 

blaze In letters bright, 
For nono but a true hero would daro to risk 

his life, 
To savo a boat nnd save a sleigh and save a 
rooster's wife.

The new- Lyric Theatre, at Hsckensack. 
N. J., Inaugurated Its new policy weok begin- 
ning Monday, Juno 80, with Klncmacolor 
feature films and a headline vaudeville at- 
traction in the porson of Carmen Erccll, 
"tho gin with the voice and tho violin." 

Miss Ercell received enthusiastic applnusn 
for her artistic and entrancing work as 
singer and violin virtuoso. She Is a native 
of Canada (that birthplace of so many musi- 
cal geniuses) and has studied the violin In 
Kurope where *he> appeared In grand concert 
work. She has- a beautiful, thoroughly 
trained volco which has been heard in opera, 
hero and abroad, and this combination of 
talent, together with her very attractive 
personality, makes her a unique vaudeville 


There will be a special performance of 
"Within the Law" at the Eltlngc Theatre 
dnrlng the last week In July, In which the 
entlro cast will be made up of lllllnutlu.i 
actors and actresses. Lord Roberts will play 
the part of Joe Qaraon. 


Miss Goldsmith, whose picture appears on 
the front poge of this Issue, will appenr with 
her partner, Joseph Herbert Jr., In tbelr re- 
cent big dance hit. They are two vaudeville 
recrulta from musical comedy, who have 
gained immediate recognition In their new 
field of endeavor. Bliss Goldsmith Is an ex- 
ceptionally attractive young woman, and Mr. 
Herbert Is a clean-cut, manly chap, and both 
fairly bnbblo with personality. For descrip- 
tive purposes they arc called novelty singers 
nnd dancers, but tbelr performance Is en- 
tirely away from the conventional. Their 
particular feature Is "Tho Dance of the 
Siren," In which Miss Goldsmith dances 
around tbo stage In n most graceful manner 
In her bare feet. Herbert and Goldsmith 
should be decidedly welcomed to the vaude- 
ville fold at Gus McCune's bouse next week.

commend Itself to Sydney's dovotecs of nr- 
llstlc conception : Faithful mis-enncene, ex- 
cellent acting, oorgcoiiB dressing and settings,

letronlua and Ktinlce, nud the ultimate down- 
fall of the mighty empire.

AT AN T()l«. 

Absolute perfection Is the unanimous ver- 
dict of playgoers who are viewing tho mar- 
velous photo mntcrallzatlon of "Quo Vadls 7" 
Nothing quite so superb as this photo-drama 
has been offered tbe public since motion pic- 
tures became a reality. 

Jtomnn history is replete with Incidents of 
pagan cruelty, but particularly blood curd- 
ling are the events chronicled during the 
lost years of the reign of Nero and do matter 

how vividly these scenes are brought home 
to us in the perusal of Blonklewicz s power- 
ful story. It falls to impress with the reality 
of these "Quo VndlB7" pictures. 

Here is seen the horrors of the Roman 
nrenn, common in the Eternal City twenty 
centuries ago, and no greater tribute to the 
combined art of the camera and stage man- 
ager can be furnished than the constnnty 
crowded Astor Theatre, where these vivid 
views are being shown.

Ills enemies through a beautiful woman. Ilia 
Hainan with her lends to his defeat, the loss 
of his wife's confidence and love, and his own 
death. He leads a double life, wooing his 
wife with white roses, emblematic of purity, 
and favors his affinity with red roses, in- 
dicative of glow and amour. 

Chyhtal i'AT.ACB (J. D. Williams. Ltd.)— 
"Wheat and Tares" is tho film of tho week, 
wherein Is graphically told how n villain 
reaps the evil that he sowed. "Perfidy of

tho English Garotte, "Rambles in Yorkshire 1 ' 
and "Btarrlti" (scenles), and "Jim Jones"

' It Is not easy ; to get Director J. Farrell 
MacDonnld to give an opinion on bis pic-

ceses da Rimini," recently produced by him 
for the Powers Photoplays, Inc. Ho says 
that he thinks it Is the best picture he has 
ever turned out for any company. If this Is 
so then if must be some picture.

Col. Cumnuna and Mr. Butler spoke very 
favorably of the 101 Ranch Shows, which 
they witnessed in Pbrtland, and were very 
appreciative of courtesies extended to them 
by Mr. Miller and others. 

Col. Cummins, Joe Frohsin, Mr. Montague

highly of the ehow. Mrs. Gate being especial-

Last week was very unfortunate In the 
matter of casualties, tbe first serious ones 
of the season. Monday night, at Bangor, 
Mrs. Grace Smith, wife of Young Buffalo, 
collided with a Cossack during the intro- 
duction. She was thrown violently to the 
ground, sustaining a dislocation of the hip, 
and was taken to a hospital two days later, 
In Augusta, when It was found that ber in- 
juries were more serious than

In. Guess everyone goes- to New York over 
8onday. Monday night, after the show. Mr. 
Cornana invited a small, crowd to go for a 
ride in a swell motor boat up tbe river to 
West Point, twelve miles, and It was great 
after tbe hot day under the white tops. 

On the way back we stopped at a wayside 
Inn and there we met some more Joy riders, 
nnd we all had a Dutch lunch, plenty of beer, 
nnd music by tbe Italians, wbo were the play- 
ing kids, so we all bad a dance and then 
went back to the cars. It was certainly a 
fine time, and we all enjoyed it. (Tuesday, 
end tbe hottest day of the season, 116 in the 
shade, and that Is going some, and it la sure 
hot under tbe tents, and more than one was 
all In after their work. In tbe evening a 
nice breeze came up and everybody felt better. 
Blackle Williams (boss of the props.), was 
very slrk Tuesday wltb malaria, and we miss 
Blackle when he Isn't here, as be gets tbe 
work out of his men. So we were very glad 
to see him back again. 

Wednesday we were to show Troy, bat on 
account of smallpox scare we went over to 
Albany and bad a holiday. Went to theatres 
and had a good time. -Showed Albany Thurs- 
day, and to good business. George Connera 
went into a picture sbow, taking his Boston 
bull, wltb blm. George fell asleep, but the 
dog got Interested in ibe pictures and woke 
George up barking at a dog in the pictures, 
to George had to beat it out of the movies. 

Red Hohmdbrf gave a box party at tbe 
Grand, in Albany. N. Y., Wednesday night. 
and it certainly looked like tbe four hun- 
dred bad turned ont, as Red and bis party 
were ail togged up in their full dress suits. 
Little Joe Coyle Is sure some boy. Just six 
years old, and the pet of th: show from tbe 
front door to the back. He Is such a little 
actor and has such big blue eyes that tbe 
Sellg film and movies, when on talking pic- 
tures, are Just crazy to get 11m for the 
movies this Whiter. 

Poor of the boys from the advance car. 
No. 2, were back visiting tbe show. Ed. 
Branson. Bud Fisher, no relation to Cartoon 
Bud : Clark Moore, no relation to little Jack, 
end Bill Perkins. 

Fourth of July, tbe day we have been 
making Ibe big preparations for, and the 
weather was perfect, and two big houses. 
Well, between shows the committee went 
down to the cars to get tilings ready for the 
big night The cars were placed cut a lttle 
ways so we had a swell place to shoot oft 
the firecrackers and -at eleven o'clock sharp 
the celebration started, and it was certainly 
great. Every one said thit tbe fireworks 
were the best they had seen In a long time. 
We had (180 worth of them, so yon can 
Imagme the display. It kept eight men busy 
for two bours lighting the fireworks, and the 
town people had tbe benefit of tbem, too, 
as It was all aerial stair, and could be seen 
for miles. After the fireworks we had all 
the refreahnunts we could drink, end turned 
Into bed knowing that we had all had a 
glorious Fourth, and one to be remembered. 
Lon Moore says he got a letter in Sche-

finally to meet and be forgiven. The comedy, 
mostly on the jump and shout order, kept 
things fairly lively until the finish, and there 
were quite a few laughs. The players did 
the host they could with the material. 

Brown and Warner, two big singers In blue 
tint evening suits, duetted In good style, 
opening with "Mellnda's Wedding Day," theu 
singly, "The Curse of An Aching Heart," tho 
"Oh, Georgia Lund," by the tenor, with re-

Sane Knowles and her company presented,

but Henrietta slipped gwty after consoling 
then with the answer that she was wedded 
to her art. Very cleverly presented, ontalda 
of a yellow tie wom with a black salt by

Brown and Fraxer, Mack face comedians, 
and Charles Nellson. with a one string vio- 
lin, completed the bill. (See New Acts for 

Big Jim held the main position on the 
Incoming change of program on Thursday, 
July 3, but the monstrous bear found the 
weather too hot to show the audience bis 
best work. However, he skated; tuukey 
trotted and drilled as best he felt, and was 
excused amid plenty of applause. 

The Hayward Sisters, a good singing duo, 
and the Caullet Players, £ "The /Trial of 
Mary." were an equal hit on this bill, and 
further mention of their work lo«ninde under 
New Acts In this Issue. 

The Three Types, a novel posing act ; Col- 
lins and Manning, conversationalists nod 
singers, and Bube Willis, violinist, are also 
reviewed under New Acts. 

Francis Wood rolls hoops cleverly enough 
to find contracts at his disposal for some 
time to come. Besides spinning the rims 
around in the usual way, h« managed to 
amuse greatly by making them perform other 
stunts. A neat act. 

A notable feature among the motion pic- 
ture part of the program was Manager 
Matthews' securing Patho's Weekly for two 
showings at his house weekly. Klaemacolors 
"War and Peace" was among the holiday pic- 
ture feutures. Toa. 

of the hits of the bill. 

Kennedy and Kramer, whom the program 
states arc bidding for metropolitan favor, 
surely got It, and plenty more. Both are 
classy dancers, and rendered In perfect time 
to the orchestra a nifty clog that brought 
them good returns. The banjo playing of 
Miss Kramer pleased. 

Charles Thompson, "That English Guy," 
offered a juggling specialty and, although 
opening the oil' proved one of Its biggest 
features. Jack.

The bll for July 3-5 was entertaining. 

The Seven Plchlanl Troupe, with a pollce- 
ntej], messenger and a newsboy, performed 
their novel stunts, and the leaps to shoulders, 
ewlsted by the two sce-saw arrangements, 
made the usual hit, .especially two double 
somersaults to a four high by one of the 

McDermott and Wallace are a natty couple, 
end both could sing and joke. "That Old 
Girl of Mine" served Mies Wallace well. 
"Never Again," a souse song, was McDer- 
mott's hit, and both scored with "ltobert E. 
Lee" and a glnjery dance. 

Powder and Capmau, the well known dan- 
cers, were til there with the footwork, but 

Night," with the atout party Impersonating 
the result. Several recalls. 

The Three Bnnnies, one lady (soubrotte), 
an Irishman and a Dutch comedian, in a 
manicure restaurant With a few funny 
signs, had a boiled down jumble of every 
burlesque ever presented. As Major Day 

handed this team. If applause and a tre- 
mendous reception count for anything, Put 
and Dolly wero one of the hlggcst hits seen 
In a long Umo at Hnmmcrsteln's Emporium 
of Vaudeville. 

Lieut Bldrldge, hilled as the snnd man, 
demonstrated his ability as a sand artist, 
but his attempt at a routine of conversation 
was the kind that makes you drowsy. Barring 
the monologuo ho peddled ho got ovor. 

Tho Dancing Maddens, a young man and a 

§lrl, have a good confine of single and double 
anclttg, but In tho singing line fall flat. If 
they hold to the dancing und they will have 
no trouble In the position they are now 
plnvlng on any bill, and will get over easily. 

The Three Alecks have a real novelty com- 
bination, acrobatic, bar and bit act, which Is 
a pleasing feature on the bill. 

YiollnsSy Is on his third return engagement 
on the corner, thla season, nnd cleaned up. 
His violin and piano specialty Is always & big 
hit, and Vtollnrifcy Is a popular favorite with 
the Hammersterfi fans. 

Adonla and his dog. "The Act Beautiful," 
never went better, and Is a fine position car- 
ried off high honors. 

Herbert and Goldsmith, held over for an- 
other week, offered "The Dance of tho Siren" 
and mads the usual good Impression, 

Trovsto, billed as the Creators of the 
violin, kept the rudlcuce ln the best of 
humor with his ecentrlc vloln offering. 

Harry Fox nnd Jennie Dolly received a tre- 
mendous reception, and Just tore along from 
etart to finish with a conglomeration of song 
and dance. 'Harry Fox put over a lot of ex- 
temporaneous comedy which lilt the mark, 
nnd rt the finish of the act were compelled to 
take bow after bow. 

John F. Conroy and bis Diving Models, 
another repeater on tho corner, closed the 
Crst part of the bill with their capital aquatic 

Delro nnd Ills brother, Plelro, Jingled off 
a number of popular and operatic melodies 
on the plano-srcordlon.

(WBimp BzctusiTBbT tob Tne New Your. 

Wbca the oxecutlve bead of one of the 
ter/rest railroad systems aa the country, a 
toaa of International reputation, and known 
from ono cntl of the country to the other, 
takes bis pen In band. Bite down and vrrltet) 
for a leading nagnslae an article hiffhly com- 
Bending the National Conaerrallre Kiposl- 
tion that la to be held In Knoxrllle, Tenn, 
tram Sept 1 to Not. 1, of tae nrmiit year — 

When this earns projeet of &<> rrJUTtnatcdl 
Southland, day by aBajr continues to attract 
attention art orer the comrtry In the ncws> 
papers, msgaalnes and weeklies — 

When tilt) rallroods of the South Join 
Druids to do everything In their power to 
make the exposition a huge success — 

When these things happen, why then there 
are hundreds and thousands of men who be- 

fin to sit up and take notice. And that I* 
list what b going on these days. The 
thougbu of these persons run somewhat la 
this wise : 

''Here la the biggest kind of on exposition 
that la going to be held in the section of the 
country that men agree la the coring sec- 

Tho big new All-South Dtilhllng, where the 
new South will be on display, la under roof. 

The Midway section of <he grounds, on 
which It was necessary to do a vast amount 
of work, >a practically ready for tho arrival 
of the different attractions, tho attendants 
pnd tne other workers, in what will ho prob- 
ably one of tho busiest ami moat popular sec- 
tions of the big exposition grounds. 

Space In the different buildings is now al- 
most at a premium, it is assured that the 
line of exhibit*, Federal, State and private, 
will be by far the most complete and compre- 
hensive ever gathered together for an expo- 
sition in thu South. Uncle Sam, In particu- 
lar, will spread himself, and will send td 
Knoxvitle a line of exhibits the Ilka of which 

8 eve.- before loft Washington. The) different 
tat* governments of the sixteen great Btatei 
•f aa issotrjn Will also make splendid displays. 

tlon of tb» United States. It is a rig propo- 
sition I can't afford to inlsa It and I won't. 
So there f 

That's why tbe hustling and prosperous 
city of Knoxvllle, down at the foothills of 
the Oreat Smoky Mountains, la making her 
preparations now to care for and entertain 
at least one million visitors from all parts 
of the country, during the two months that 
the gates of the exposition will bo open to 
the public. Prom the looks of things the 
good people of Knoavlllc are not gotng bo 
be disappointed In this regard, rather they 
are going to be surprised, Tor those In close 
touch with the affairs of tho exposition, 
those who haro their fingers on the pulse ot 
the people, confidently expect the attendance 
from outside the city to go well orer the 
million mark. 

W. VT. Flnley, president of the Southern 
Hallway, was the railroad executive referred 
to In the opening paragraph. In the July 
issue of a Middle West magasine, and over 
his own signature, Presldont Flnley says: 

"The National Conservation Exposition, to 
be held la Knoxrllle, Tenn., during the com- 
ing Kail, 'will, I believe, be a moat important 
factor in tbe dissemination of knowledge aa 
to tbe resources and opportunities of the 
Southern States, and In the development of 
trade along the North and South, lines 
through, the river gateways. It la for this 
reason, of much more than local or sectional 
importance, that not only those who ara 
Interested In tbe Southeastern section, but 
also those who are interested In the develop, 
mont of trade along North and South lines, 
should co-operate for Its success." 

And when it is remembered that tho 
Senato of the United States In aa official 
report had some highly commendatory things 
to say of this project, then it is easy to see 
that the Infiuence behind it Is weighty and) 
fear reaching. 

A little teas thas two months before the 
dale set for opening the gates of tho National 
Conservation Exposition finds everything con- 
i.ected with it far advanced. The buildings 
that have and art going up are either com- 
pleted or no nearly so that It will take but a 
short time to finish them. The big Libera] 
Arts Rulldlna- Is finished. So is the new Land 
Building dol apfles— the latter an audi- 
torium sealing three f hotisend persons. The 
Tennessee BuildJFii is almost finished,

■mite these days. "Groucu" and Wright are 
divorced; they are no longer on speaking 
terms. ''Joy" is his boon compaulon. 

Why? Because Mr. Wright not only has 
been able to dispose of most of his concear 
slons, but also because he has been able to 
book a tine Of attractions that spell the big- 
gest and best and liveliest Midway ever seen 
at an exposition South of Mason's and 
1)1 ion's line, and one of tho best over seen 
in the country. lie has piled one big attrac- 
tion to on top of another so fast that now 
it ia a question how they all con bo shown 
to the best advantage. Ibo cyea of the show 
world aro on Knoxvllle and the National 
Conservation Exposition now, and soon Mr, 
Wright and his assistants will bo ready to 
■welcome them to Knoxvlllo and show them 
what a progressive Southern city can do 
once It sets out to accomplish something. 

One feature ot tho exposition that will 
appeal to show people, is that of arranging 
for almost the entire exposition period, a 
scries of special days, that oiust bring— all 
of them — large crowds into Knoxvlllo for 
these duys. Tho very low rates of faro of- 
fered by nil Southern rnllroads, the lowest 
ever granted an exposition, with the excep- 
tion of the world's fairs, are also sure to 
have their effect on the outsldo attendance.

"The PKebnork Quilt" (Edtaon). 
Released July 2. 

Tills screen story is baaed on the poem of 
the same name, and tells a tale laid in the 
days of '61. Qua Phillips, a* tbe young 
officer, la Ills usual clever self. Tbe balance 
of tbe cast are adequate. The direction and 
{-holography are up to Edison's hlgb|standari 

"Historic New York" (Kalem). 
Released Jnly 2. 

Several interesting views of New York are 
shown. Tbe pictures of Wall Street and 
downtown New York being especially good. 
However, pictures of this character have 
been Known so many times by tbe numerous 
"topical weeklies," and In earlier days, by 
the stcrcoptlcon, that subjects of this char- 
acter must be of sensational callbro to hold. 
Tbo photography Is very good. 
"The Raiders from Double L Ranch" 
(Kaletn). Released Jolr 2. 

A vague sort of story, with rather slow 
action. Tbe tale takes too long entirely In 

Setting under way. Several views, of nun- 
reds of sheep and cattle grazing, and a 
prairie fire are interesting. Tbe acting is 
good but there Is an abundance of old fash- 
ioned gun-play and hold-up business that 
has long since outlived Us avalllbllity •■ 

Shotoplay material. The photography and 
lrectlon arc good. 

"The Drnmmer'a Umbrella" (Bssanay). 
Released July 2. 
Notwithstanding tbe fact that the title 
contains tbe word "Drummer," this Is not s 
war drama, but It Is a really humorous com- 
edy with a good story and plenty of funny 
situations. The outdoor scenes that were 
taken In tbe rain were excellently repro- 
duced. Billy Mason, as a bellboy, and Cnas. 
Stlne, as tbe hotel clerk, both portray their 
roles cleverly. Richard Bolder, as the drum- 
mer, and Ruth Uennessy and Gertrude 
Fortes, playing the female roles, are thor- 
oughly up to the requirements of exacting 
cbaravterlsatlons^ The photography and dl- 
tectlon are very good. 
"Re-Tagrsred" (Easanay). Released 

Ned Nye, a recruit ffrom the vaudeville to 
the picture ranks, 1b the featured player In 
this comedy. Tbe story while conventional 
Is well told and. the laughs are numerous. 
The leading female role, of tbe wife, is finely 
portrayed by Beverly Bayne. The outdoor 
scenes are natural and convincing. In all, 
a clever light comedy In which good direction 
and acting predominate. 

"Sonus of Troth" (Sells;). 
Released July 2. 

A photo-drama of Civil War days, in which 
brother Is arrayed against brother In the 
treat strife of fifty years ago. The costumes 
and Interiors are historically accurate, and 
the principals play their exacting roles with 
spirit. A powerful little tabloid drama with 
a touch of real pathos. The encampment 
scenes are excellent. Fhotograpby and di- 
rection up to standard.

of tbe Hagenbeck Zoo, at Hamburg, gave Mr. 
Sellg emphatic assurance that bis pair of 
Siberian tigers were tbe handsomest animals 
of the kind in this country. In the same 
shipment came a dwarf African elephant, 
"Anna May," which stands four feet high 
and is the cutest little pachyderm that ever, 
came over the "big pond." Three new 
trained leopards, an American mountain 
lioness and. a pair of bear cubs are among 
other acquisitions of the menagerie that will

weight aoubrette of tbe Sellg Stock Company, 
who has again proved hex cleverness and 
versatility with another contribution to the 
Sweeney series, declares her love for warm 
weather in unswelterlng terms, flhe says 
people of modern weight doing light house- 
keeping, cooking three meals a day in a 
buffet kitchen, should not mind high tem- 
peratures a bit. "If I did not have to write 
plays and act them I would enjoy nothing 
better than baking hot biscuit all day long — 

Oscar Eagle, the leading producer of the 
Sellg Polyscope Co,, has completely recovered 
his health, and declares be never felt more 
tit. He expresses bis constant surprise and 

? ratification over tbe line available locations

nated Chicago from tbe map.

Mary O'Neil, of Portland, Me., has been 
the guest ot Louise Vale at the Pilot Studio 
for several dnvs. 

Lottie Plckford, of the Pilot Co., was cele- 
brating her birthday last Monday. Lottie 
got a shampoo in the morning and left tbe 
parlors before her hair was perfectly dry. 
She contracted a severe cold, which caused 
ber to lose her voice. 8he's been whispering 
to everybody now for the past several days. 

Director Vale, of the Pilot Co., received an 
otter of a large salary from the B. C. Com- 
pany to manage their English productions. 
Owing to bis contract with tbe Pilot, he 
turned the offer down. 

Lottie Plckford gets over some good acting 
in "A Child of the Hill!." release of June 19. 

The Pilot Co. outdoor studio Is working at 
full blast now. 

Pinochle games are becoming -very popular 
at tbe Pilot Studio. Kenneth Davenport 
seems to be. the "shark," and George Morgan 
the "goat." George Is making some progress, 

It seems that baseball and tennis fans are 
equally divided at the Pilot Studio. The 
"tennis-baseball" fans don't want to give up 
tennis, and the "baseball-tennis" fans don't 
want to give up baseball. Ed. Earst, a well 
known baseball pitcher, however, says "we've 
got to get a baseball, teain," and be la making 
some progress.

Eddie Shutter took up more than half of 
Tuesday night's regular Reliance meeting of 
heads of departments talking about his plans 
for the carpenter's shop, property rooms and 
paint frames to be Installed In the new 
studio. Eddie knows what he wants, sod 
as Manager Rltchey lays the sky is the limit 
why Eddie Is happy. 

A new Forrest Halsjy story, entitled "Tbe 
Strange Way," Is scheduled for lelease on 
July 19. w 

Rosemary Theby's next appearance will be 
in "A Hospital Romance," released on July 
21. Alan Hale, with his six feet of blond 
manhood, makes an excellent contrast for 
her dark style of beauty. Her following 
effort will be as an Italian girl, in "Maria 
Roma." with Irving Cummlngs playing the 
opposite role. 

Irene Howley was welcomed back to the 
Reliance Studio after • two weeks' rest 

"Half a Chance" proved a rather strenuous 

flcture for Miss Howley, but she la back In 
be harness ss good «a new, and still good 
natured. « 

■ Edgena de Lesplne swung a long sharp 
dagger to such good advantage in a scene b> 
"Ashes" that she drew the claret from 
Irving Cummlngs In the very first round. 
Nearly fainted, too, lust to be womanly. 
"Very realistic." calmly remarked Director 
Oscar C. Apfcl. ' 

Chas. P. Hanford,. the. eminent Bhakes- 

Searean tragedian, has been engaged by the 
aumont Company, Ltd,, of London, to give 
a lecture In conjunction with tbe "Undying 
Story of Captain Scott and Animal Life In 
the Antarctic." <as- recorded by Herbert Q. 
Posting, official camera artist of the expe- 
dition, who accompanied Capt. Scott as far 
as It was possible to transport the heavy 
«lnema.tfisraph. anMratua, and made the first 

Bvebt week sees new recruits from the 
vaudeville ranks entering (he field of motion 
picture acting. Joe welch was noted a 
week or so ago; now I ?ec Ned Nye, song 
writer and erstwhile variety comlqne, is 
playing for tbe camera, under the Bssanay 
standard. Ned recently appeared la a pic- 
ture,' entiled "He-Tagged, a clever little 
comedy; and put It over in great shape. I 
expected to see Ned execute a step or two 
any minute during the action of the skit, 
but was disappointed at the absence of any 
Interpolated business of a terpslchorean, na- 

The Empire brand, consisting of two and 
three reel Naval ana Puritan pictures, will 
be released by tbe N. X. Motion Picture Cor- 
poration, beginning Sept. 1, IBIS. Famous 
all over tbe world for their spectacular and 
massive productions of the Kay-Bee and 
broncho films, Kessel A Baumann, owners of 
the N. Y. Motion Picture Corporation, prom- 
ise that this new brand will eclipse all their 
former efforts la the feature line 

"Ueabt Thbobs," a two reel Broncho fea- 
ture, to be released Wednesday, July 9, 
brings Hazel Buckhtm to the front as an 
actress .of. sincerity and emotion. She por- 
trays the winsome, light-hearted girl of tbe 
South, and later the broken-hearted and be- 
reaved widow and mother with rare tender- 
ness and pathos, and her acting surely sbowa 
the touch of the true artist. Incidentally 
this film is one of the prettiest and most 
touching turned out by Mr. Ince, and the 
scenic backgrounds are a Joy to look upon. 

Richabd Srr.NCEB, scenario editor of tbe 
N. ,Y." Motion Picture Corporation, and a well 
liked gentleman, both East snd west, will be 
in New York the latter part of July on a 
brief vacation from the Coast. He is one of 
the best Informed technical editors of the 
silent drama, and has to bis credit many of 
tbe feature successes of the past year. 

After the Eclectic Film CO. had, with 

freat pains, secured a copyright on their 
ve reel production, "The Mysteries of 
Paris," they were greatly surprised to learn 
of a copy of the film being shown in some 
parts of the country. Upon getting definite 
information to tbe effect that the Bijou 
Dream Theatre, Cleveland, Ol, had completed 
arrangements for showing "The Mysteries of 
Paris" on June ?-4. the Eclectic Film Co. im- 
mediately got busy and placed tbe prosecu- 
tion of their rights In the hands of their 
attorneys, who proceeded to Cleveland and 
started suit against the infringers. Judge 
Day, of the U. 8. District Court, granted a 
writ for replevlnlng the infringing film, 
which was seised by U. 8. Marshal Banning, 
together with all the posters that were found 
on the premises. The Eclectic Film Co. has 
decided to figbt this case to a finish, and 
will also proceed against any other copy ot 
an Infringing film that may show up any- 
where in the country. The Eclectic Finn Co. 
wishes to assure Its customers that they will 
give absolute protection on all their copy- 
fished features, and that buyers are assured 
that if anyone of their films is Interfered 
with by piratical copies that the Eclectic 
Film Co. will spare no effort and expense 
to have same seized forthwith, so matter 
where It may be shown. 

Manager J. V. Ritchet, of the Reliance, 
is not a man who enthuses very easily, and 
Is seldom heard to make any extravagant 
statements about the output of his own stu- 
dios. In view of this fact his remarks re- 
garding "Her Rosary," to be released on July 
16, are worthy of attention. "Of course I 
have not seen every picture that has been 
produced, but both aa an exhibitor and a 
nanufactorer I have made It nv business to 
see a large number of them, and I can safely 
say that I consider 'Her Rosary' the most 
artistic single reel subject I have ever had 
tbe pleasure of looking at Of course, it Is 
whnt might be called a 'fancy' picture. All 
tbe sentiment of tbe poem Is greatly In its 
favor, all of which goes toward giving It the 
artistic finish which we so admire In a 

Mauds Fbalt, whose first Tbanhouser 
starring vehicle, "King Rene's Daughter," 
has just been released, will next be seen In 
"Little Dorrlt," a three reel adaptation of 
the famous Dickens story. The new Fealy 
subject wilt be released late in the month of 
July. In the earlier stages of the play, 
"Little Dorrlt" Is depicted ty theThanhouBer 
Kidlet. Another Tbanhouser three reeler for 
July Is "Tannbauser," after the opera. Mar- 

e erite Snow and James Cruse are featured

Chables M. Seat Is patting himself on the 
back as one of our best diplomatists. And 
why shouldn't he? It Isn't every director 
who could persuade the governor of Georgia 
and the mayor of Atlanta to let go the helm 
of public affairs to pose in moving pictures. 
Bbt Mr. Seay has the gift of persuasion 
which turned the trick, and both of these 
celebrities consented to appear in the Edison 
film, "8cenes of Other Days." 

Hbebebt Pbiob, who appeared with both 
of the celebrities, when asked how they rm- 

Jireased him as photoplayers, said that be be- 
loved politics really held out a more prom- 
ising field of endeavor for them both, though 
be was surprised at their self-possession. 
However, though he could not recommend the 
executives for stock company purposes, he 
was warm In their praises in all other re- 
spects. In fact, both he and Mabel Trun- 
nelle united in their expressions of delight at 
tbe old fashioned Southern hospitality which 
was extended to them on every hand during 
their stay. 

William West has returned from his trip 
to Georgia as a member of Charles II. Seay's 
company. Mr. West reports a most enjoy- 
able time with a slight exception of the loss 
of his pocketbook In the Atlanta station. He 
was descending the stairs to the train plat* 
form at the time, and distinctly felt some- 
one pushing him, but thought It was Her- 
bert Prior urging bhn on. Prior, however, 
bad been separated from bhn in the crowd, 
as he discovered too late. - - 

We hate to spring this as It sounds sus- 
picious, but it Is a matter of record that at 
the time of the theft be was playing the part 
of a man who was robbed of his ticket snd 
money on a train and had been forced to 
get off at Atlanta. . Mr. West did not care 
to say how mnch the wallet contained, but 
It is understood that he unstained a consid- 
erable loss.

The American Film Manufacturing Co. 
will release a two reel subject every other 
Monday. The Ashes of Three," a • recent 
two reel release, met with such tremendous 
approval and created such a demand for 
more multiple "Flying A" releases, that 
in future the one reel subject of every sec- 
ond Monday Is to be replaced by a two reel 

b A two reel 'Flying A" subject under the 
shove title is destined to be a remarkable fea- 
ture It Is the first of the two reel features 
by Lorlmer Johnston In which J. 'Warren 
Kerrigan takes an especially strong part. The 
entire company supports Mr. Kerrigan, ana 
many scenes require a large number "of su- 
pers. Tbe play demonstrates tbe versatility 
of Santa Barbara settings, as the scene 
shifts from Chicago to a Mexican mining dis- 
trict A stirring scene is taken on the 
Mountain Drive, where an Intense battle and 
tire take place. 



The State of Georgia was ueimnnently and 
thoroughly organized June 30, and delegates 
were elected to the national cenventlon. U. T. 
Koch was elected national vice-president, and 
John Evtns was elecetd president. A full dele- 

fitlon will be In New fork ro represent the 
tate of Georgia. A big banquet was held 
at the Kimball House, Atlanta, on Monday 
night, June 80, and was given by the con- 
solidation in honor of the occasion of the 
State of Georgia being organised. The 
Georgia exhibitors are coming to New York 
In force to carry off the convention of 1914, 
if possible, for Atlanta. 


Another picture player, on tbe straight 
strength of a "picture reputation." has fol- 
lowed John Bonny into the "big time 
vaudeville theatres. In the past five years 
various of the film Idols have appeared "hi 
the picture and small vaudeville theatres, 
but Bunny was the first 1o "show" In the 
flesh In a large house. This second photo- 
player to answer the call of the big vaude- 
ville houses is little Marie Ellne, the "Tban- 
houser Kid." She Is this week at Proctor's 
Twenty-third and Fifty-eighth Street Thea- 
tres, New York, where she Is to be headlined 
over a dozen stage celebrities.

Sam Ennuerr, who Is known to fame as 
the author of popular songs and vaudeville 
sketches galore, among which "Bunker Hill," 
a popular song of several seasons past was 
a record breaking hit, has turned bis prolific 
pen to the writing of photoplays. His latest 
effort Is entitled "Thou Shalt Not Steal," 
which the Reliance Co. will produce shortly. 
Sam says the photoplay "Thou Shalt Not 
Steal" Is dedicated neither to melody 
writers or baseball players, who purloin 
bases, but Is a serious effort, and Intended for 
the elevation of the mechanical drama. -

to be presented at the exposition by Mana-

were selected by him as being absolutely the 
latest word In photoplay producing from an 
artistic standpoint. "Ashes," a two reel sub- 
ject scheduled for regular release on July 12, 
will be shown at the exposition, as will also 
the single reel subject, "Her Rosary." Every 
scene of "Ashes" Is viewed upon the screen 
surrounded by a bouquet of flowers. The 
border changes from violets to sweet peas, 
American beauties, lilies of the valley and 
orchids, the two reels being double exposure 
scenes throughout 

Tue little four year old star, Runa Hedges, 
who Is being presented in a series of Buna

appearing for tho past week In the larger

V. Rltcbey haa bad so many requests from 
exhibitors to give their patrons an oppor- 
tunity of seeing little Runa "In the flesh" 
that he allowed her a couple of weeks' vaca- 
tion from the studio to accompany her 
mother en tho present tour. Much to every- 
body's surprise, Runa is not satisfied with 
merely making a bow to her audiences, but 
Insists upon being a "regular" actress. 

Tbi New Majestic offices learn that a 
rumor bas gotten about tbat Lamar John-

Tin theatregoers of Hoboken, N. J„ solved 
a mystery last week. Louise Vale played the 
leading parts In stock In that city 
irolng Into the moving picture field. The 
Jefferson Theatre, knowing how popular sho 
\ras with the people of Hoboken, bodked 'The 
Governor's Romance," In which Louise plays 
the lead. Her name was advertised In all 
tbo local papers and posted up tri front of 
the theatre In large display. It proved a 
great attraction, and the theatre was crowd* 
ed to full capacity at each performance. 

Tub Pilot Co. now has two directors at 
work. Travers Vale, who has been with the 
company from Its Inception, Is working on 
a three reel feature, 'The Btreets of New 
York," and expects to continue turning out 
large features for tho company, which will 
be sold on a State rights oasis. Robert Good- 
man, formerly with Mclles and Majestic, Is 
turning out "one reel features" for the com- 
pany. His first picture, written by himself, 
will be released July 10, "Sanitary Gulch,' 1 
and Is one of those comedies that keeps ono 
laughing all the time. His next picture, 
"Granny," is a heart interesting drams, in 
Which Lottie Plckford plays the leads. The 
scenario for this picture was written by 
Lottie Plckford. 


Tbe motion picture rights of Thomas 
Hardy's novel, 'Tess of tbo r/Urbcrvllles," 
were recently secured by Daniel Frohman 
from Mr. Hardy and bis publishers, Harper 
A Brothers. Mrs. Flake, some time ago, en- 
tered into an arrangement with Mr. Frohman 
to present her dramatic creation of "Tess" 
before the camera. For the past four weeks 
the studio of the Famous Players Film Com- 
pany has been occupied with tbe making of 
these pictures. Mrs. Flake approached tho 
work with all her original enthusiasm for 
the role, and She has found It extraordinarily 
interesting. In the film play the story close- 
ly follows the novel, entirely departing from 
tho form of the play made from It by Lorl- 
mer Stoddard. Many scenes, therefore, will 
be shown tbat were not seen In tho dramati- 
sation. The photoplay will he given In five 
reels snd will provide a complete evening's 
entertainment A special company Is being 
Incorporated under the title of r 'Tho Mrs. 
Flske Film Company" to exploit the films, 
which will be shown only In theatres of tho 
first Importance. The appearance of Mrs. 
Flake In tho picture drama In America Is as 
significant IS was that of Madame Bcrnhardtj'v

Motion pictures have become excecdlnglf 
popular throughout tbo 8crllle district, ana 
those, shown hero havo often a more than 
passing merit. Until recently the films ot 
rathe Freres, Paris, wrro used here almost 
exclusively. Now, however, some Scandi- 
navian nnd American films are alio shown. 
American dims unfortunately too often depict 
"Wild West" scenes, which are not under- 
'stood and appreciated as thoroughly as Euro- 
pean films, which frequently give entire plays 
lasting nn hour or more, or picture stories of 
such works as I,cs Miserable. For the pro- 
ductions tho best actors and actresses are re- 
quisitioned, and the settings aro extremely 
elaborate and artistic. Especially In Summer 
ere motion pictures popular, when one may 
watch them all evening lit open air restau- 
rants for tho price of a cup of coffee or a 
glass of wine. In Winter the prices ot ad.

from which this pretty moth Is transformed, 
Is a very common one. It In largo and

himself on some particularly tasty plant; 
then Is shown the chaogo to tbe chrysalis 
stage. Shrunken In size, he lies almost Inert

shell emerges a moth with short wings, 
Whllo waiting for bis wings to grow the 
moth has a hard time until be finds a secure

elephant hawk moth Is shown folly developed 
and in all his glory, ready for his Initial

Manager Billy Matthews convinced every- 
one who attended Proctor's Twenty-third 
Street Theatre on Monday night that tie wns 
the "regular little up-to-tiic-oilnutc manager'' 
In having secured that wonderful little act- 
ress of plctorcdom to rhyme with local sur- 
roundings for the current week. 

The Motion Picture Exhibitors' League Is 
homing; a jlortooa exhibition *l the Grand 
Central Palace, this week, m Mr. Matthews 
whs not going to penult- aocfa an event to 
slip by wit bout having an attraction at his 
pretty little taonae to harmonize with the 
time*. He made his -wont known up at the 
Proctor booking offices In the Putnam HnlM- 
Ins that no one else would fill the bill but 
in tie Marie Btoe, tbo "Kedlnc MajE 
m-tress of toe motion picture worCB," who la 
it.iIH faanooaty known a* **ne Thsabouser 
Kid/ . 

.Needless to say Manager William won his 
iild and tola clever tittle girl opened at hl» 
theatre for the first three daya of tb« week, 
\Kglmlag Monday, .inly 7, and was as de- 
light fill a success In the public performances 
of that date aa she has been for the past 
throe years hr a feature In photoplays pro- 
duced by the Thaohouaer Film Company, of 
New RoehcHc. "The 8arnh Bernhardt of the 
Silent Drama,'' aa Little Marie has been 
termed, did Justice to the 'wonderful French 
actress whom aSe so remlnda one of, and Ae 
1" Just what Manager Matthews asserted,

The long expected examination Into tie 
methods of the Motion Picture Patents Co. 
■was started Motndsy. July 7. in tile Federal 
iitiilding, New York, before Special Examiner 
Joseph flacker, Several witnesses were 
called and told then* stories of the aliened 
business methods of the so-called motion pic- 
ture trust. Peter Adams was tba first to be 
called to testify. 

Mr. Adams said" he was an exhibitor at 
f.lf) Mala Street, Paterson, K. J. 

The 'principal complaint of Adams seemed 
to be that on advertising the Indianapolis 
automobile races, made by an Independent 
lompany the Patents Co, notified him not to 
exhibit t-atne on pain of having his license 
revoked. Mr. Klngsley, chief attorney for 
the M. P. Patents Co., asked the witness sev- 
eral questions. 

Several other witnesses were put on the 
i Intnl. and each had something to say of not 
'particularly complimentary nature, re their 
lvlutlous with the Mu. Qli> corporation.

A California canyon In miniature will be 
one of the most attractive features of tbe 
Panama-Pacific International Exposition, to 
be held at San Francisco, in 1013. The can- 

7 'on, which Mil measure eight hundred feet 
ong and four hundred feet broad, will. pre- 
sent, in tabloid form, many of the features 
that have contributed to tbe beauty and 
grandeur of the Golden State. 

The ground that has been chosen for the 
building of this canyon rises from the edge 
of a lagoon that will front tbe Palace of 
Fine Arts to a hill South of the Exposition 

Tbe summit of the hill will be the top of 
the canyon from, which a roaring torrent 
will leap over huge rocks and boulders, wind- 
ing through gulleys arid bounding over chasms 
and groveling at the feet of giant redwoods 
until It reaches the pool at the Northern end 
of the gorge. 

At the opening of the canyon a bridge 
will cross the gorge, and at each end of the 
bridge a trunk of a giant redwood tree will 
be tunneled through and make an impressive 
entry Into the garden of wonders beyond. 

Almost every kind of tree and flower that 
grows In California will be In the canyon, 
and to make tbe, picture more than ever 
realistic there will a model Indian 
village, where membafs ,of the various Call- 
fornlan tribes will be seen a^.work upon the 
arts and crafts m which they arc so deft. 
There .will also he a model ranch and a 
gold digger's camp. ........ ... 

The canyon fs being built under the super? 
vision of John C. MacJLarep, chief of the 
Department of Landscape Gardening to the 

Exposition. -w— — - —
